LONG-TERM RESEARCH AND MONITORING OF
NORWEGIAN KILLER WHALES FOR CONSERVATION
Norwegian Orca Survey is a non profit organisation dedicated to long-term studying killer whales occurring in the Norwegian Sea. Collecting robust data, building a better understanding of this population's biology and ecology, and putting this knowledge available to management bodies are of crucial importance for conservation purposes and constitute our main objectives, .
Killer whales are also top-predators, potentially having great impact on prey species. Knowing about their ecology also assists in better understanding marine ecosystems.
Education and outreach constitute another important component of our mission.
We have also lead rescue missions (killer whales and beluga whale) in animal welfare cases.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Ongoing research projects entirely rely on fund raising and donations. Costs mainly consist in that related to fieldwork including boat maintenance, fuel and research equipment such as cameras, drones, biopsy devices, hydrophones and other electronics.
You can help! If you want to support our research and conservation work, please donate today. Your contribution will be used directly on killer whale research. Donations of equipment or sponsorships are also extremely valuable.
